[Derry] ‘Lost Youth – Songs of Solidarity’ – Benefit CD launch and gig

‘Lost Youth – Songs of Solidarity’ is a benefit CD for a young Palestinian theatre performer imprisoned by Israel since 2005. Fifteen year old Mohammed was taken by soldiers as he travelled with other youths to participate in a dance and drama tour of Ireland, Scotland an…d England. A portion of proceeds will also go towards promoting the child prisoner issue.

Rich, passionate and absorbing, the album contains an eclectic mix of songs and tunes from a variety of genres. Traditional Irish and Basque tracks nestle comfortably between thought-provoking political folk and Palestinian hip-hop.

Contributions include: Gráinne Holland, Barry Kerr, Cormac Breatnach, Pól Mac Adaim, David Rovics, Lowkey, DAM, Arramazka, Mickey Coleman, Declan McLaughlin, Kila, Damien Dempsey.

Live performances by Declan McLaughlin and Gary Óg on the night. More to follow.

Pictures and information on Mohammed’s case will also be on display.
